[BubbleNews] AMD PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 will earn $ 238 million - this year alone

PlayStation 4 has been presented, and we will soon know the new Xbox 720th Both platforms will most likely debut in the last quarter of this year and probably very quickly bring big profits. Not only for Sony and Microsoft, but also AMD.

It is the company from Sunnyvale to provide the most vital components for both devices, and it seems that a lot of this money goes to. Interestingly, another opinion is Nvidia, which said recently that production of the SoC for Sony's PlayStation 4 was unprofitable. It is interesting, however, is whether it actually came from the analysis of the company, or whether they are merely words to sweeten the fact of losing the competition with AMD.

Considering that AMD lost 1.2 BILLION dollars last year, this doesn't change their long-term viability all that much.

Well that's a pessimistic vision of how much AMD can earn, if this console generation lives for 7 years AMD can earn aprox. 1.666B$ so each year they can invest 238M$ into R&D but since sooner or later we are out of economical recession. I think they could most optimistically can earn in 7 years 3B$ from PlayStation 4,Xbox 720 and not including Wii U that may risen soon also Sony will need an new handheld in next 3 to 4 years and AMD will be the candidate to maintain compatibility with with PlayStation 4. Microsoft may decide to make a handheld also if they want to compete with Sony, maybe...

Gabe Newell may choose for SteamBox AMD since he wants an affordable PC console and he may look at Kaveri because of HSA and since all next generation consoles use one or another AMD's hardware.

Then we have the tablets and hybrid tablet-laptops that AMD will most likely dominate thanks to their APU's and in the future HSA technology, anyway AMD may have a good contract with Razer... Don't believe me?:

So Razer has been mentioned, so maybe AMD will have in next Razer's product(laptop, computer, console?, razer edge, etc/what ever...)

I certainly hope that the $60 figure is what AMD is making in actual profit for each unit sold not just what they are being paid per unit.

Considering they were getting roughly $120 per unit on the x360.

Xbox 360 will most likely to be sold for another one year and people will want to play games from Xbox 360 since there and Wii also had some AMD's hardware if I stand correctly?

You're kidding, right? $60 is most likely their actual revenue per unit, not their profit. Nobody (except Nintendo at times) makes that all much profit on console hardware sales, especially not the suppliers of sub-components.

Of which approximately 300M$ was the bill for cancelled manufacturing volume from GF; not long term.

Why exactly would I be kidding?

Estimated cost for the 360 at debut was $141 for the GPU and $106 for the CPU.

AMD is now going to provide both of those in APU forum for only $60 making perhaps $20 in actual profit per unit?

That was many years ago. Prices will obviously be lower with an Apu.

By the end of ps4, wii u, and next box's lifespan, AMD will have been the premiere designer for gaming consoles for nearly 15 years. WII, 360, WII U, PS4, NEXTBOX with over 400 million total units sold is a really impressive resume. They are going to make a truckload from this and it will single-handedly sustain them into the next decade.
